All clothing starts in the textile industry. Textile is a flexible material consisting of a network of natural or artificial fibres often referred to as thread or yarn.

Japan The discovery of dyed flax fibres in a cave in the Republic of Georgia dated to 34,000 BCE suggests textile-like materials were made even in prehistoric times. Textiles can be made from many materials. These materials come from four main sources: animal, plant, mineral, and synthetic. Textiles are made in various strengths and degrees of durability, from the finest gossamer to the sturdiest canvas. The relative thickness of fibers in cloth is measured in deniers. Microfiber refers to fibers made of strands thinner than one denier. The textile and apparel industry comprises more than 30,000 companies in the textile and apparel sectors, generating some 14 million to 15 million jobs, both direct and indirect. Modern Textile Industry In 2008, there were 497,100 wage and salary workers in the textile, textile product, and apparel manufacturing industries. ^A woman working in a textile factory^ As textiles are the main raw materials for daily necessities such as garment, the development of the textile industry determines the supply-demand relationship and the price tendency of the garment and other industries. The sales revenue of the textile industry sustained growth since 2005. However, the growth began to slow down since 2007.
